I met up with my critique group once again. We had a full group this time and lots of stuff to discuss and critique.
Mr. Nasty has made his appearance. 🙂
I am trying to write every day, but at the same time I’m packing to move to a new place. It makes things difficult. Not only that, I picked up a Christmas angel from my church and need to shop for him.
I did send my first couple of chapters to a friend to see what she thought about it. She’s seen my early work and knows of my overall improvement. I haven’t reached the million word yet, but I think I’m getting close to that. I mention that because yesterday I looked at something I wrote back in 2009. I was shocked because it’s like 95% telling, 4% info dump and maybe 1 % showing. It’s really difficult showing rather than telling, but after hearing Lori Wolfe read a short scene with it telling and then showing helped a whole lot.
A few other things. I’m debating on when to start a professional facebook page and twitter account. I haven’t done it yet, but I figure it’ll be sooner rather than later.
One other thing. I’m over 19K words now 😀
